Davies, John (Editor), Harris, Paul (Editor): 80 Graded Studies for Saxophone Book One
80 Graded Studies for Saxophone, selected and edited by John Davies and Paul Harris for both Alto and Tenor Saxophones, brings together in two books a broad selection of 18th and 19th century repertory, with studies by Arban, Baermenn, Blatt, Brod and others. Also included are a number of specially composed studies by Paul Harris. These introduce aspects of 20th-century style and considerably extend the scope of the selection. The studies are arranged in order of increasing difficulty, according to a carefully planned technical progression.
80 Graded Studies for Saxophone Book One are arranged in increasing difficulty from elementary level to early intermediate (Grades 1-5).
Studies are an established part of every instrumentalist’s training. They place technical problems in musical contexts, and can be invaluable aids to development. 80 Graded Studies for Saxophone is a must-have resource for all students and teachers, and the two books feature heavily on the major examination board syllabuses.
